Red Sauce and Meatballs

4 Hr

Mama mia, this is good! Homemade spaghetti sauce doesn't have to simmer all day to be full of flavor. This version does just fine in only 4 hours.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (25.6-ounce) package frozen meatballs, thawed
  • 1 cup frozen chopped onion
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans organic diced tomatoes with basil and garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons prepared minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 14 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

What to Do

  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker, stirring well.

  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 4 hours.

  3. During the last 30 minutes of slow-cook time, cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and oil. Serve sauce over pasta; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
